On our annual camping/family reunion trip up the coast, we took a little time to visit Summerland, California. Our destination was Red Kettle Coffee Shop and while we were there, we found a nice little secret beach. Such a cute coffee shop and some good coffee. I feel so absolutely lucky to live in California. I wish I lived closer to the coast but that’s okay, it’s a freeway ride away. I especially love the […]
San Diego Botanical Building, Balboa Park – 5/24/19
After our San Clemente visit, we made our way to San Juan Capistrano. Such a cute little town. Wanted to eat here but it was aleady closed. Boo! It’s right off the Amtrak train tracks. There is a nice adobe house with some pretty gorgeous cacti trees. It gives you a bit of the history of the city. Gorgeous! There is a nice little neighborhood by the train tracks. It’s a mix of residential, cafes, […]
Last week I started my vacation or should I say staycation. I was itching to go somewhere, so we took a nice day trip to the beach town of San Clemente. I guess you could say I kind of fell in love. The surf report for the day looked pretty swell. Just kidding, I have no idea what any of this means other than surfers should use caution. I did sit on the pier and […]
Last month me and my sister went to San Diego for a short trip. Sisters Weekend! We took the Amtrak. Hooray for not having to drive and no traffic. Here’s a view as the lovely ocean came into sight. We spent a lot of time in Balboa Park. There’s so much to do there. So many little corners to explore. It must be fun during the Summer time. The blossoms were on-point. Saturday night in […]
After we hit Santa Barbara, we started to head home and decided to take a detour to Ojai. I haven’t been there since I was young. It’s a small town but so charming with lots to check out. I hope to return for a weekend and take advantage of their spas and hiking trails. Some beautiful stairs. Old timey cocktails? Yes, I always say yes to a good cocktail. Clear blue skies for miles with this […]
A few weeks ago I went on a little road trip, with my sister and Dad up to Santa Barbara. What can I say, the weather was beautiful, the company was good and I think we all had a good and relaxing time. Some nice colors in the patio area. So California! We took a walk on the pier. This little guy seemed to be enjoying his ocean so much. He was just riding the […]
Some snapshots from today’s visit to LACMA. I love the architecture of the buildings. Contrast-y. It looks so beautiful at night too. .Like, whoa! Such a cool jewel to have in Los Angeles.
